What is the Movie Machine?
The Movie Machine is a very impressive piece of kit and is one of only a handful of similar venues worldwide. This unique facility turns from a HGV lorry into a fully equipped heated and air-conditioned digital cinema, able to show all the latest film releases.
Fun for all the family
We offer service personnel and their families based in the UK, a unique opportunity to experience our mobile cinema facility.

How big is the Movie Machine?
The Movie Machine stands 4m tall, 16.5m in length and is 2.55m wide. When its hydraulic system fully opens out to show movies, the vehicle is 12m wide and occupies a hard-standing space of 20x25m.
With 80 internal seats an audience can enjoy films in 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, projected using a Barco digital system onto a 1.6m x 4m screen.
In partnership with Sky
The Movie Machine is sponsored by Sky, providing screenings to their VIP customers, competition winners and staff throughout the UK. This successful partnership enables BFBS to provide beneficiary screenings to the UK Armed Forces.
